What’s The Eight-Year-Old reading this week?

Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old’s inquiring mind wants to know about hypnosis. 

A sampling of this week’s books:

The Eight-Year-Old’s third grade classroom book shelf is the gift that keeps on giving. On Wednesday, The Eight-Year-Old discovered Molly Moon and her incredible talent for hypnotism. The Eight-Year-Old has been speaking to me with wide swirly eyes ever since.

That is, when she can bear to look up from her book at all. She even canceled Family Togetherness Masterchef Junior TV Time this week in favor of reading about Molly Moon’s hypnotic adventures in Hollywood.

These Molly Moon books must be exceptionally compelling reading. I thought nothing could come between The Eight-Year-Old and her affection for the nice version of Gordon Ramsey. I might have to read one of these books myself.

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
